Honest and complete communication topic of abortion has never been more urgent. This anthology aims to raise consciousness and awareness about the variety, prevalence, and necessity of abortion and the wisdom, self-reflection, and humanity of those who choose it. Gloria Steinem has just agreed to write the foreword.
The current table of contents includes work by writers past and present including Ai, Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn Brooks, Lucille Clifton, Dorothy Parker, Jean Rhys, Anne Sexton, Ntozake Shange, and Amy Tan, and I continue to gather contributions. With increasing participation from outside the U.S., the book is now crossing the boundaries of nations as well as centuries.
Please send published or unpublished work – and please especially send leads to writing from times, places, groups of people who won’t be able to respond to this announcement. The deadline may be somewhat flexible, so it’s ok to try sending if you really want to–especially for work from countries other than the U.S.– even if it’s after the deadline.
And please spread the word! Thank you! xoxox Annie
